Welcome! Here are few random facts about me (that's why you're on this page, right? Extra information?)

  1. I LOVE books and reading and if you come anywhere near me you will be strongly encouraged to talk about both of those things.  For SJF's first year, I actually stepped back from teaching to assemble and organize the school library. It was SO MUCH FUN! Seriously, one of my best jobs ever. Top two for sure!
  2. Since I earned my B.A./B.Ed. from the University of Lethbridge in 2000, I have taught nearly every grade and subject. My favourite subjects are Language Arts, Social Studies, & Foods and I am thrilled to have found a new home at Fairbairn and taught all three this past school year. 
  3. I love to travel! Whether it's a big European adventure, or a stay-cation road trip to a local site, I love to learn by seeing and experiencing and have been privileged to have so many opportunities to do so. I can't wait to hear about your adventures & dream adventures as well!
